GO PUBLIC: Conversation with Student STEM Majors at MA Public Colleges and Universities – Session 1

Room: Red Level, Suite 68

Massachusetts public colleges and universities now educate more than two-thirds of the high school students who attend college in state. In fact, the public higher education system will play the leading role in educating the state’s future STEM workforce as 9 out of every 10 students from the public system remain in the Commonwealth after graduation pursuing careers or further study. In this interactive session, participants will engage with STEM students from UMass, state universities and community colleges about their choice of majors, research opportunities, and the current state of STEM teaching and learning on public campuses. This session will be hosted by Massachusetts Commissioner of Higher Education Richard M. Freeland.
